The Tryst (1880).

The Tryst (The Factory Girl's Tryst) (3)

The windmill in the background (on the woman’s left at shoulder level) may refer to a Manchester legend about two lovers, one a lowly miller’s daughter, the other the son of a man of property, who took their own lives rather than live apart. (Information from notice by picture in Manchester Art Gallery, the story of the legend credited to unpublished research by Danny Morrell.)
